August 2016


A couple of weeks in the Newport area. I was thrilled to be out painting a painting a day for six of those days.





















Newport Fishers 12' x 9" oil on board




Ona Beach 14" x 11" oil on board





















Ona Fog 10" x 12" oil on board

Back home again


Willamette Falls 16" x 20" oil on canvas 

My son Mike asked me to do a painting of a friend of his. I believe I got the likeness pretty well but slightly at the cost of getting a little tight.

Summer 2016

Finally took a break from glass painting and got out to paint "en plein air"


Clackamette park 11" x 14" oil on board

Yesterday while firing my glass pieces I started this little painting. It's from a photo I took on an exploratory trip north of Newport a while ago. I finished it today while waiting for the right light in the studio for photographing the right panel of the church window I'm finishing up. I saw a lot of promise in this scene. The light is unique for my outdoor paintings. It was overcast and a bit moody but the color still had some richness.


Li'l Island 14" x 11" oil on canvas

Another one started in the evening. I worked on it when I could squeeze in time between the weekends activities. I tried not to fuss it to death but it needed a lot of detail to capture my vision. Just finished it this afternoon. Now back to glass painting.


Sea Cave 12" x 16" oil on board.


Two of my paintings on either side of another artist's work on the wall of a friend.
